Orlando, FL, October 24, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Herbicides can be applied at full strength in cooler temperatures without risking damage to St. Augustine turf grass so those pesky broadleaf weeds that popped up with the summer rains will be controlled with fall and winter treatments.
Insects such as chinch bugs and sod webworms and mole crickets are less of a concern as the temperatures begin to fall.
Brown patch fungus will begin to make its presence known with cooler nights so avoid watering the lawn at night and reduce the frequency of watering to combat the fungus.
Pro-Staff Technicians can apply fungicides to help control it but the disease requires a high moisture content to survive and a reduction in water is the best deterrent, as always Pro-Staff Termite and Pest Control technicians stand ready to provide quotes for solution to any of your lawn, pest or termite control needs.
